What are you favourite three global accents?

For me

1, South African, especially Highveld accents
2, Baptist Belt accents in the States- Southern Belles are so...
3, Zagreb accents in Croatia- every sentence ends in the word 'bog'

  • South African and Baptist Belt are not accents to be exact, they're dialects.
    An accent is when a non-native person speaks a language that is not his/her mother tongue and thereby creates a pronunciation that deviates from the way native speakers speak it.
    A dialect is a "variety" as we call it in linguistics. It is spoken by a native speaker but it is different in pronunciation, morphology and sometimes syntax than the varieties spoken by other native speakers in other regions of the country or the world.

    My favorite accents in English are French, Dutch and the different Scandinavian accents.
